From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen comes a new thriller that will have Eve Duncan questioning everything she thought she knew about her family and her past

One woman held captive for decades…

Another one freed by the truth…

  

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan knows what it''s like to be haunted by the past.  For years after her daughter Bonnie was stolen from her, she fought for closure.  But now as she''s striving to begin anew, she can''t shake the feeling that something terrible is about to happen-or maybe already has.  When her mother, Sandra, asks for help in finding a missing friend named Beth Avery, Eve is sure that she''s hiding something.  It's odd that Sandra would get involved at all, and the fact that she adamantly refuses to go to the police for help reinforces Eve's suspicions that something is very wrong.

 

Eve learns that Beth has been locked away in a mental hospital for years, which makes it even harder to understand how she could have disappeared. As Sandra reluctantly reveals small pieces of the truth about Beth''s identity, Eve is shocked to discover that their lives are strangely entwined, and Beth''s disappearance now puts them all in grave danger.

 Desperate, Eve enlists a secret weapon to pick up Beth''s trail:  rogue profiler, Kendra Michaels. With an uncanny ability to detect clues and solve puzzles, Kendra begins to uncover the bizarre circumstances of Beth''s escape from what should have been the safety of her hospital room. Beth is on the run, and as her mind clears--detoxing from the drugs that have held her prisoner--she begins to see the threads of a twisted plot within the powerful Avery family, threatening to destroy Beth and anyone else who might jeopardize the high-stakes game that is already in play.

Read from the Book

CHAPTER 1     Seahaven Behavioral Health Center Santa Barbara, California 1:40 A.M.     THE KILL SHOULD BE RIDICULOUSLY EASY. Not really worthy of his talents, Drogan thought as he moved silently down the hall. It was all a question of timing. The nurse who was usually on duty at the desk of this private wing had left on her break three minutes ago and would not return for another seventeen minutes. Another nurse from the ward on the third floor, who was scheduled to cover her absence, was due to make a routine check in about ten minutes. No other coverage was considered necessary since the patient was always heavily sedated. He’d have to be out of here by then. The nurses at Seahaven were always as punctual and routine-oriented as everyone in the plush mental hospital. They had good jobs and wanted to keep them. Too bad. The private nurse’s job taking care of the woman in that suite down the hall was about to come to an abrupt end. He stopped before Beth Avery’s room and carefully, silently, opened the door. The lights were out in the room, but Drogan could see her heaped beneath the covers on the bed across the room. She should be sleeping well; he’d been told they always gave her extra drugs at night. Including this night, her last night. He took the hypodermic out of his jacket pocket. Yes, it was too easy, he thought. Any of her doctors or nurses could have given her the fatal injection. She was drugged and helpless. Why pay a
